Growing and Forming: Essays on D’Arcy Thompson

Growing and Forming



Essays by Matthew Jarron, Cathy Caudwell and Meic Pierce Owen exploring the life and influence of D’Arcy Thompson


Detailed Description

This book celebrates one of the most influential science books ever published, D’Arcy Thompson’s On Growth and Form. Written in Dundee but drawing on D’Arcy’s global network of contacts, the book has been described as “the greatest work of prose in twentieth century science”. It pioneered a new field of mathematical biology, now a major area of research internationally, but it also had a profound impact on many other fields including art, architecture, anthropology, geography, cybernetics and systems theory. On Growth and Form is arguably more influential now than at any time before, and this book of essays seeks to explore the history and context of D’Arcy’s extraordinary work.
